It’s Not All Smoke and Mirrors Anymore: It’s Green Screens and CGI

The Hollywood movies we all love to watch look completely different while in the making. And the movie industry has come a long way due to major advancements in technology, including impressive CGI (computer-generated imagery) and green screens.

While we used to have to use our imagination or settle for less than impressive “special effects,” now we don’t have to. Because Hollywood has done such a convincing job for us. But if you’re even somewhat curious, you must have wondered, “How do they do that?” Well, most of the time, they’re actually in a big hangar in front of a green screen. Check out these cool behind-the-scenes photos revealing the magic of Hollywood.
